Introduce a 2.4 GHz transceiver to your design with the nRF C Click Board™! MikroElektronika has introduced a compact add-on board that incorporates the nRF24L01P 2.4 GHz transceiver module with an embedded baseband protocol engine. The nRF C Click Board™ carries a 2.4 GHz SMD chip antenna, which basically differentiates the Click Board™ from the other nRF Click Boards™. The module supports air data rates of 250 Kbps, 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps, and is designed for operation in the world wide ISM frequency band at 2.400.
The nRF C Click Board™ is an add-on board in mikroBUS form factor. It features Nordic nRF24L01P 2.4 GHz transceiver module with an embedded baseband protocol engine as well as 2.4 GHz SMD chip antenna. The board supports an air data rate of 250 Kbps, 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps and it is suitable for ultra low power designs. Typical applications include wireless PC peripherals, remotes, VoIP headsets, game controllers, sensors, home and commercial automation, active RFID, toys, etc. The nRF C Click Board™ communicates with target board microcontroller via mikroBUS SPI (SDI, SDO, SCK, CS#), CE and INT lines. The board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only.
IC/Module: nRF24L01P 2.4 GHz Transceiver Module
nRF24L01P is a highly integrated, ultra low-power transceiver IC for the 2.4GHz ISM band. It supports 250kbps, 1Mbps and 2Mbps on air data rates. The module provides automatic packet handling with a 1.9 to 3.6V supply range. The only way it is different to nRF24L01 is a 250Kbps data rate.
Alternative Antenna Options
Two other nRF Click Board™s (nRF S Click Board™ and nRF T Click Board™) with on-board nRF24L01P chip are also available, which differ only with the type of antenna. While the nRF C Click Board™ comes with an integrated SMD chip antenna, nRF S Click Board™ has SMA antenna connector and nRF T Click Board™ comes with an on-board PCB trace antenna.
